Descending from the mountains, down the plain,
Into the valley, I have found a cave
To live in and to contemplate my pain
And joy, the love and strife designed to save
Me from my selfishness, to be reborn.
Do not mistake my constant strong desire –
The animal is transformed to adorn
The unity whose friction brings the fire
Of love out of apparent fleshly lust,
Erecting a true temple to embrace
The higher life of love and joy and trust
That life will lead me right and bring me grace.
When I want to make love to you it’s so
Our spirits can emerge and merge and grow.
